Now you can import and take notes on YouTube videos! When you add YouTube videos into Protolyst, you can now add annotations and capture Atoms from auto-generated transcripts. This addition can take your notetaking to the next level with the ability to add YouTube Video notes!
With >50 million channels, YouTube can be an incredible source of knowledge, and a powerful learning tool. To support your learning, you can now import YouTube videos and take notes on the autogenerated transcript.
While the video plays you can follow along with the text using the Auto Scroll Transcript feature. You can easily capture any important details in the text as Atoms and add your annotations.
Once you create an Atom, you can connect it across your workspace to support your projects. If you want to rewatch the video, your Atom will take your right back to the exact location in the transcript, and acts as a timestamp for you to watch the video from this point!
